[powerpress]What a whirlwind week it’s been to be a Bengals fan!

Schefter vis Twitter: Carson Palmer to the Raiders now official. Compensation expected to be a 1 in 2012 and a conditional 1 in 2013. Who Freaking Dey. And the Bengals play the Raiders next season in the jungle.

Here, in no particular order, are some random observations I jotted down while watching the Bengals thrilling 23-20 win versus Buffalo yesterday: Observations from Week Four: –Andrew Hawkins is a dynamic player in space.
